Changes within the last 90 days...
- Engine fix for OF fielding. Transposed number in 12/31 update caused a small drag on OF defense.
Is this related to that fix they made in January? Perhaps the same transposition exists for the live engine and they didn't fix that? It seems as if the main issues are
with OF defense...
That appears to be exactly the problem. I went through the OF and SS with the most errors. The 10 OF I looked at average being on pace for 7.7x their actual errors, and the SS average 1.5x RL pace. Several of the players at each pos are on the same teams, which eliminates the deadball-pitching issue — on my team, OF Jimmy McAleer is on pace for 185 E/162 compared to 32 E/162 in MLB; SS Honus Wagner is on pace for 34.7 compared to 42.1 in MLB.
On a fun (for everyone but his GM) note, Bing Miller (B fielding) is on pace for 297 errors.
Data below for highest-error players at OF/SS through an average of about 25 games per team.
